Many women of color use a "Rat Tail Comb" to untangle or comb through their hair. But what we are actually doing is breaking off multiple strands of hair with each stroke. This applies to relaxed hair too. But hair in its unprocessed natural form should never see a rat tail comb, because our natural hair has such a tight coil, that the coil get stuck in the combs teeth and snaps off as we run the comb through our hair. Big wide tooth combs are the move. I do stress the use of bigger combs to ladies that perm, because your hair is already in a fragile state and you shouldn't put anymore stress on it especially if you need a touch up. But sister girl if you want to be rough and tough with your afro puff pick up a wide tooth comb. *** After I put the rat tail comb on blast I must say that they are good for parting and styling hair once it is detangled!***
I am a beautician, magician, an artist. Growing up in a house filled with ethic women I know the struggles some of us go through in order to attain the perfect style , even if it means destroying our natural hair. I want to change that! There are many sites that tell you to use products created for only ethic hair but we need to think outside of the box where our hair is concerned. Our hair is unique and strong but often very misunderstood by ourselves.
